, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the
this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has been a lot of consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good move? >> well, look, first of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the road he gave his political opponents ammunition. i don't think there's going to be a long-term effect. the issues raised this week about he should have met with netanya netanyahu, other world leaders, there's some political vulnerability and republicans are probably correct to pick up on that. i think the most significant thing about the noise that's being made about all this is that i think we have eight or ten polls now that have shown on the question of the economy, which was supposed to be the element of the romney campaign, vote
assistant secretary of state for public affairs and ambassador richard williams, mitt romney's senior foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then d
. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m
policy front and center at this point in the campaign. >> i thought it was good mitt romney went there, cracked a couple of good jokes, and you have to say, look at the overall position in this election, it seems extraordinary to me that the polls seem to be widening. when you have a country that's 8.2% unemployment, $16 trillion in debt, gas prices doubling, all of the huge sticks to beat the incumbent president with. and you look at it, mitt romney has to win, the lead stretched to an eight-point lead. why is this happening? why is mitt romney not able to persuade the public, despite the devastating statistics against barack obama's tenure? he's apparently rolling away to victory in places like ohio? >> is that for me, piers? >> yes, richard. >> thank you. first there, are ebbs and flows. jimmy carter was far ahead in his election against ronald reagan, where he was beaten decessively. i think polls would show them statistically tied, tough fights in certain swing states. what governor romney is trying to do is point out the fundamental differences between his faith ain the private s
foreign policy speech in next couple weeks. details on that forthcoming. which illustrates on romney and paul ryan's campaign which was thought focused on the jobs and economy has been forced into a broadened portfolio to include foreign policy and international affairs. it turned out to be fortuitous. there was a lot of speculation that mitt romney's relative inexperience one-term governor of massachusetts up against a commander-in-chief that claimed to kill bin laden would be a real liability. we've seen in recent weeks mr. romney has been able to get on offense. he was criticized for his early statements suggesting that the cairo embassy remarks attacks on benghazi were inappropriate. when you look at the subsequent list of alleged gaffs, misstatements and inappropriate rhetoric the president has been accused of even suggesting egypt isn't an ally made it possible for mr. romney to take more offensive approach on foreign policy and go up against the president to suggest he has not been a strong leader. bill: carl we'll be back to you in a moment. as soon as we see governor romney
policy speech to again outline his criticisms of the president. romney's argument has been obama leadership worldwide has weakened the stature of the united states and has made it more difficult for us to hold our adversaries at bay and put us in adversarial position with a lot of our allies. most notably mitt romney can't go a foreign policy speech once without saying in his view the obama administration has thrown israel under the bus. he has specifically been playing to his relationship with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. they have known each other for almost 30 years when mitt romney took his overseas trip he spent a lot of time with netanyahu and referred to each other by first names and very informal and on brightly spotlighted international stage. romney believes he will strengthen u.s. alliances with israel and that is absolutely necessary and he suggested mr. obama too often has been disrespectful and given the cold shoulder to the jewish state that becomes emblem attic of all of that that is not what the clinton cgi speech is all about. republicans for d
york city right now. carl, was it expected mitt romney would start the day on foreign policy? >> reporter: well, sure. clinton global initiative virtually guaranteed that. after the terror attacks in benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador dead the mr. romney was clear he would give additional foreign policy speeches in today's speech in front. cgi. we can expect him toe be particularly critical are president for what romney has said has been an inadequate assertion of american values overseas during this mounting violence across the middle east and north africa. this morning at this event with president clinton mr. romney joked about how nice it is occasionally to have introduction from bill clinton and suggested he will wait for the bounce. a reference to the one that president obama got after the democratic national convention insofar clinton's speech was the one best received there. romney holding his partisan punches talked a lot about the world's problems. he says he has a plan to deal with u.s. foreign aid would in essence link it to trade and develop nations willing to
think it's going to be a domestic policy debate. i'm sure romney's main message is going to be, look, it doesn't have to be this way, okay? we can create jobs, we can deal with the federal deficit, and, yes, we can have a foreign policy where we stabilize these parts of the world if we'll just act in the traditions of bipartisan foreign policy since world war ii. i think that's going to be his basic message. >> in the op-ed there was a phrase used, soft power. i guess what does that mean? what would they have done differently with libya? >> well, here's what should have happened. first, ideally you anticipate the arab spring. if you can't do that, when it happens you set forth a very clear vision of where the region ought to go, in the direction of a constitutional government. you actually get involved in these countries. you learn the elements that want those things. you support them and give them credibility. you identify the elements that don't want those things. you oppose those. you actually use the tools. >> do you think the united states should take a stand in open den dmitri
on foreign policy against romney, and he doesn't really draw more attention to all the unrest in the middle east that's going on right now, but, you know, pairing his visit with going on "the view" obviously was really bad optics. the campaign is sort of trying to backtrack that, saying it was a scheduling matter, both events were in new york, so he tried to be efficient with his time. it's sort of just a lose-lose situation for him. if he had met with the leaders, he would have drawn more attention to the problems in the middle east. >> greta: he could have done both. he could have gone on "the view" and met with world leaders, right, steve? >> yeah. >> greta: i mean, he could have done both. >> it's inconceivable that he didn't meet with world leaders, that he didn't change his schedule to meet with bibi netanyahu. if you believe the rhetoric coming out of the white house and the state department they buy the way that the israelis define the threat. they sort of want to believe the urgency. yet the president won't meet with netanyahu on -- potentially on the verge of a war, in an effort t
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
policy and it is one that the american people largely agree with. you know, if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. when it comes to our national security cisions, any pressure that i feel is simply to do what's right for the american people. i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> was he calling binyamin netanyahu noise and having copping dialogue on this? >> not at all. the president's record with respect to strong support for israel would be one of his finest accomplishments in office, security and military and intelligence cooperation between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership is actually historic. talk to the people in the southern israeli and how they are now protected by the iron dome, anti-missile system which president obama has been instrumental in helping to pay for, israel's military qualitative edge continues to be extremely strong. we have had the largest joint military exercises between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership and there is more to come. whet
. what mitt romney needs to do is say look, i'm the candidate who's going to deliver more work and better and higher wages through my plan an there are a few things like energy policy and making the case for tax reform. he's made it much, much harder for himself than he should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he said he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative base locked up. romney's dealing with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a littl
presidential nominee mitt romney. at a campaign stop in springfield, virginia he said the slow growth was proof that president obama's economic policies have not worked. >> if you don't believe me why look at the price of gas and the jobs in your community and the members of your family that are struggling for good work. if you don't believe me look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% versus russia at 4%, china at 7-8%, we are at 1.3% this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get things working. >> sreenivasan: 200 miles away in virginia beach, president obama acknowledged the economy is still struggling. but he also promised the crowd he'll push for an era of what he called economic patriotism. >> during campaign season you always hear a lot about patriotism. well you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. i won't pretend that getting there is easy. the truth is it's going to take a few more years to solve chal
, it didn't. it's actually worse now than it's been. mitt romney's also sharpening his attacks when it comes to president obama's handling of foreign policy. the publican candidate keyed in on this phrase that the president udu a miservi when he was asked about the recent unrest in the muslim world. >> i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democry, universal rights, a notion that people have -- have to be able to participate in their own governance. but i'm -- i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> he said the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. yethyti bumps in the road. we had an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 pele have been killed in syria. these e not bumps in the road eseanlis, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of t
